What does a business litigation lawyer do?

what does a business litigation lawyer do?

A business litigation lawyer handles disputes and litigation that relates to businesses specifically such as franchise disputes and debt recovery. Litigation is the process of handling disputes through the court process and mediation etc. They can also help resolve business disputes with other organisations such as tribunals and government bodies such as the Tax Office or State Revenue offices and Councils. Not all business lawyers are competent in litigation and there are only a few that can handle both business law and litigation in reality. Mostly lawyers will focus on either litigation or business law as litigation as court processes are quite involved and differs greatly from commercial law advice.

If you need a business litigation lawyer to assist you with a dispute or claim made against you, you should ensure that you obtain advice from a team that has knowledge across both areas and can draw from each other and give you the best result. We do have some lawyers who straddle both litigation and business law and can assist business owners with a range of their legal issues. There are multiple ways to resolve disputes and at PCL Lawyers we work with you to make sure you have the best chance of getting your matter settled quickly and to your satisfaction.
